I was recently contacted by The HybridLight Company.  I traded emails with them for a day or two and asked them about a hybrid solar/battery powered flashlight they sell.  Honestly, at first, I wasn’t that enthusiastic about reviewing a flashlight.  Everyone has their preference of brands.  To me they are a lot like a pocket […]
